|self-portrait by eve arnold|
i'd like to pay tribute to the wonderful photojournalist and first female magnum member, eve arnold, who passed away yesterday at the age of 99. ms. arnold paved the way for us female photojournalists with compassion, wit and grace. her philosophy, "if a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. it is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument," is close to my heart and i have tried to maintain this sentiment in my own career. to to see a fuller body of her work visit her gallery at magnum.
